The notion that Darwinian forces may drive the way organizations operate and how societies evolve has become a hot research area. Consider, for instance, the 1997 launch of an online journal on “memetics,” or how imitation shapes behavior, and a recent study suggesting that stepmothers are stingy with food (Science, 8 December, p. 1887). A modest but growing site called Evolutionary Theories in the Social Sciences*aims to bring this field together with book reviews, journal links, a forum, and conference updates. The site is run by a professor of management at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.
